Bottle poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours deep golden amber with a frothy off white head that settle and laces well.

S: Floral hops, some citrus notes, and some Belgian funk.

T: Floral hops, some citrus, lemon and a touch of orange, a little peppery and grassy, Belgian funk, a little grainy, with a light caramel/honey sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: I'm generally not big on Belgian style beers, but this one is pretty crisp and refreshing. I might not go out of my way to grab it, but I wouldn't complain if it's put in front of me.

Clear copper pour with off-white foam. Aroma of yeast, malt and some citrus. Hop bitter up front, with a mellow lingering bitter, but pretty clean finish. Not the best of this style, but entirely enjoyable.

Bitter but not terrible. These sneak up on you if you drink more than 3. Don't let your girlfriend drink these, it's called raging bitch for a reason.

Appearance - Light amber colour with mild streaming CO2. Good off white foam head that is around 3 fingers and is pretty tight in make up. Good head retention and some light lace

Smell - Yet another IPA that smells like a Lemon Geranium plant ie piney and citrusy. There is also decent amounts of grape, orange, mandarin, coriander seed and leafy wood.

Taste - Sweet at first, this one rides from sugary malts to citrus fruit; mandarin and through to piney hop but none of these elements are over powering or dominant. The whole experience is well balanced, full and refreshing.

Mouth feel - Smooth and medium bodied, neither dry nor cloying but also lacking in pronounced linger.

Overall - WEll balance and tasty but slightly pedestrian the mouth feel is the weakest link but this beer is by no means a bad beer just a bit of a let down given the hype.
